It was a great turn out and about 25 people attended this year. We received a little rain but it wasn’t enough to dampen our spirits, especially with a wonderful rainbow afterwards as a reward. We would like to thank Heinz and Marilyn again for being such organized, attentive, and gracious hosts and to Claire and Joe for all their organizational work, and for bringing food, drink, and bright smiles. Enjoy some photos below. Photo credits Cliff Hanson, David Sweeney
